At this time of year, the completion to the title of this post could be any one of a number of things. For instance, anyone with a botanical background will not want to miss the last of any flowers that might be in bloom or the brevity of the autumn colors. Or the anyone with a particular interest in our feathered friends will want to catch the final glimpses of any birds on their way to warmer climates. For those of in New York....it means last call for trout fishing across most of the state. I haven't had a whole lot of opportunities to fish in the last few weeks and this past weekend I decided that the season wouldn't slip by with out one more quick trip to a favorite place.
|My first catch of the day|
All of these brookies were caught on a #10 Killer Bug (including the little guy...which was pretty ambitious if you ask me). This was not the most memorable or productive trip I have ever had but I got my last "fishing fix" on a wild trout stream for the season. Bottom line, it was good to get out and leave the stress of the week behind and spend time with my family. In the end that's what matters most.
